I don’t remember when I first saw Gerard Hoffnung’s musical cartoons, but I know they were an instant hit with me…which was remarkable because, truth be told, I didn’t even really like cartoons that much back then!
Fast forward to the present and I find myself often drawn to creating illustrations and cartoons of my music colleagues, both real and imagined. A coping mechanism? Steam valve? Perhaps, but it’s also my way of paying homage to the art of music and the wonderful personalities that inhabit this noble world.
